World Book Day
Students receive special visit and talk from acclaimed author.
As part of Thurston Community College's World Book Day events, the school welcomed Sufiya Ahmed, author of the acclaimed Secrets of the Henna Girl.
She gave a talk to Year 7 classes discussing what it is like to be an author, how to get published and all about the issues raised in her novel about forced marriage.
The students returned during break for her book signing session, along with other students within the school who wanted to find out more about becoming an author and the subject of the novel itself.
